Today's workout was killer.
I used a standard 12 rounds of boxing but for the 1 minute rest in between rounds I did a different exercise. For the first 5 rounds of shadow boxing I used 3lb hand weights, 6 with 1.5lb weighted gloves and then the last round with the 3lb hand weights again.
In between I did the exercises as follows for one minute-
Kettlebell Front Squat 12kg KB 21 reps
KB swings 24kg (That always blows my mind because it's half my BW) 22 swings
Romanian dead lift 65lbs 25 reps
Pistol squats left & Right 10kg kb 24 reps, 12 each leg (30 seconds ea side)
BW squat 28 reps
suitcase dead lift left & right sides 16kg KB 22 reps, 11 ea side (30 seconds ea side)
Barbell glute bridge 65lbs 32 reps
Lunges with a twist 10kg KB 22 reps
Kettlebell Halo 20 each direction 10kg KB
Seesaw press 10kg KB 25 reps
Kettlebell Curls 10kg (these are soooo heavy for me!) 26 reps (30 seconds ea arm)
bent over KB rows 10kg 17 rep ea side
KB Snatch 36 reps 1 min per side
Also I counted my punches today 3,480
I set up everything I needed around my home gym (I am insanely lucky) before I started so I could just flow through it. It was very hard with no rest, as soon as the timer sounds you start boxing again. I am very very sore tonight but tomorrow is an active rest day (yoga) so I am looking forward to it.
I took some ab pics today. The thing for me is that I never had abs. I was overweight until college and then ended up with anorexia in the hospital fighting to get better. In early recovery I had my first kid and then two more! My body never got a break and I lost a massive amount of weight after pregnancy, I have so much loose skin and stretch marks that I TRY to embrace but its hard. A year ago I was fit and happy but I never would have shown my abs. Its a HUGE deal for me to be comfortable like this!!
Pic one is from today and then the second pic is a comparison for Feb to now. Honestly I cant believe I am comparing "after" pics. I never thought Id come so far.
